My friend, Diana, sent me this recipe. She said she hadn't tried it, but she knew I probably would.
Well, of course I did. It had chocolate in it.
This is really good, and it actually works!
It would be awesome for late-night cravings; just enough for one or two servings instead of an entire cake..........
Add some drizzles of chocolate syrup and some Cool Whip...ooh! or canned frosting!
The batter does rise up way over the top of the mug, but doesn't run down the side.
Be careful not to overcook--our microwave is higherthan 1000 watts, and three minutes was a dab too long--dried the cakes out a little bit. Anyway, give it a try! .......and be sure to watch it the whole time it's baking in the microwave!!!
DANGEROUS CHOCOLATE CAKE-IN-A-MUG
1 coffee mug
4 Tbsp. cake flour (plain, not self-rising)
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil
Small splash of vanilla
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips, optional
Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork. Add egg, mix thoroughly. Pour in milk and oil and vanilla, mix well. Add chips, if using. Put mug in microwave, and cook for three minutes on 1000 watts. Cake will rise over top of mug--do not be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little; tip onto a plate if desired. Eat! (This can serve two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous.)
And WHY is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only five minutes away from chocolate cake any time of the day or night!!!
(the possible variations on this are infinite. I used Dark Chocolate cocoa.....you could use rum instead of the vanilla....or amaretto extract....any kind of chips....oh my...)
